3660 Park Place Gets Some TLC

Porch repairI’m very happy to see that some brick repair and repointing is being done on this Park Place row home. Over the years, many of the columns on these homes have shifted  due to settling and are no longer completely stable.

Generally, I’ve seen many instances where the quick fix it to merely repoint the column with cement rather than the appropriate mortar.

On this home … and I don’t see this done often, especially outside of a historic district … the entire column was removed and it looks like its been rebuilt from the bottom up. Nice job!
